Connected Families Workshops

Connected Families brings our teaching and experience to you by partnering with your church, ministry or organization. Our team of speakers will bring you biblically-based teaching designed to meet the unique needs of the parents and families you serve.

Our workshops are customizable: We will work with you to plan and prepare for meaningful content that is targeted to your specific audience.

Our rates are competitive: We are also willing to work within specific budget constraints to bring you the best Connected Families speaking staff has to offer your group.

I’ve been to hundreds of lectures, trainings, and seminars, and this one completely stood out! The content was engaging, and the innovative activities touched all learning styles while going to the core of the soul. It changed my life!

 MOPS/Mom’s Groups

Peaceful Mothering (1)
Delivered by Lynne Jackson or Anna Braasch, Peaceful Mothering is one of our most requested MOPS/mom’s group talks, filled with rich authenticity and practical insights. The moms in your group will be invited on the spiritual journey of transformation and peace, as they learn to speak the truth in love to themselves, about themselves and their children.

I just wanted to thank you again for your fabulous talk. Many people told me that you were the best speakers they’ve ever had at MOPS. You dealt well with the difficult emotions we experience as moms, that are so important, but tough to be open about. The women also loved that you shared your own stories, and were amazed at your story!moms-group-with-kids

Cost? As with our other workshop offerings, we do suggest a standard donation rate, however, our goal is to make it possible for us to speak at all mom’s groups regardless of your budget.

This is made possible through a special fund called
Kali’s Joy, in memory of our dear friend and co-worker Kali Joy Hendrikson, who passed into eternity with Jesus on December 15th, 2013. Kali’s journey was both tragic and inspiring. After losing her first son Isaiah at birth, Kali felt called to Connected Families to help reach families with Jesus’ love. Three months later she was diagnosed with the cancer that eventually took her life. She continued working diligently, knowing her prognosis was poor. Her determined faith and diligent work have left indelible fingerprints on Connected Families’ ministry. Her husband Nick, along with Kali’s family, is delighted that the Kali’s Joy fund will enable many moms of young children to be encouraged by the Connected Families message that Kali was so passionate about.
